Hi, My name is Vickie Wooten, I am an acrylic artist who just loves to paint. I have been drawing and doodling all of my life, but , within the past three years is when my artistic nature took flight. After years of working as a nurse, raising 4 sons who are all grown, I now find myself able to concentrate on developing my artistic skills. I intend to pursue my new career in art, whether it be as an artist, or illustrator for poems or short stories. I tried many mediums when I first started painting, after trying acrylics, I knew I had found my medium. I am on numerous sites with my art, I have sold paintings, drawings, and as of now I have paintings in a local gallery. I have recently sold a painting to a gallery owner in England. I have painted on commission. Painting is a passion for me, when I paint I lose myself within the painting. I become one with my art. Time seems to stand still , I become obsessed with the painting that I am creating at the time. I am a traditional artist, my one new love in art is painting animals and nature scenes, I hope to bring awareness to people about the plight of some of the endangered species, be it bird or animal. Each one of my art pieces have meaning to me, I hope when you view them, you will see how details , even the smallest are so important to me. I paint from photos and memory, I take a blank canvas and create each one, simply with paint and brush. I love my art, I hope you will enjoy it too.
